tempting forgetfulness

There's a lonely streetlight
outside my house
sometimes drug dealers
stand to one side of it
and sell pot to kids
when the sun goes down
the cops don't seem to care

Sometimes I feel as lonely
as that streetlight

I lost the life
that was growing Inside my womb
and I don't know how to feel
all I know is that a part of me
is broken
and I don't know if or when
I'll ever feel normal again

There's a lonely streetlight
outside my house
sometimes drug dealers
stand to one side of it
selling pot to kids
and tonight I wonder
if I should go out
and see if he's got
something for me
to help me forget
